Online Live Worship for April 18, 2021 – 3rd Sunday of Easter

Through the Easter Season (which runs through Pentecost on May 23, 2021) Pastor Char will focus on blessings:  Let’s wonder together the variety of ways we can receive blessing, be a blessing and share blessings with our neighbors and each other during this Easter Season! Each service will offer music, a reflection, prayer, and a different blessing and practice every week that we can use to build up our ministry and the Word we share in the world!

Worship streamed live from the sanctuary of Second Congregational Church, UCC, in Newcastle at 10:00 AM.  Pastor Char led us on this 3rd Sunday of Easter, which also was Earth Day.  She shared some thoughts about Earth Day prior to preaching her sermon.

In Pastor Char’s sermon, “Be A Blessing: Be Kind, Be Thankful”, she reflects on the relentless stress and trauma that we’re experiencing these days – pandemic, racism, violence, isolation and more – and offers thoughts on how to get through this.  As Christians, that’s what we do.

The Order of Worship is available on our church web site at
